Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

A large cave!

This is an astonishing large cave! It took us almost an hour to walk (and take heaps of pictures) around. The audio guide is not that interesting though.

Dear Jojo Mara L, Thanks for your feedback, it's very valuable to us. We're glad you enjoyed your visit. You're right about the back exit of the cave. It's one of the best parts of the whole Mammoth Cave journey which takes visitors from a lush valley into darkness, through a number of caverns, back to daylight via a sunken... More

Much larger than the Lake Cave, the Mammoth Cave boasts a huge area of walking space, numerous stalactites and stalagmites. Walking mostly on metallic boards, there are some stairs to climb between each "chamber".

This cave was awesome, it was huge and lots to explore in your own time. You are given your own headset and off you go. The headset gives good information about the cave. Access is good, a fair amount of stairs but achievable. You can either return the same way or leave the end of the cave and do a... More

Spectacular. Don't forget to ask for seniors prices if you are a pensioner. The cave itself is massive and as you visit various areas there is an audio guide to inform you. There are a number of steps to contend with but if you take your time they shouldn't be a problem. At the conclusion of the cave there is... More

This cave, is different from all the other caves. I actually preferred the fact you can go on your own journey and take as much time as you like throughout the cave. It's bigger than the Lake cave but just as amazing in a completely different way.

Lovely place to walk through the bush amongst the Karri and marri trees. Costs 22.50 each to do the cave and as we wanted to do the jewel cave we skipped the cave here.
